Thermal Mass Flow Meter Handles Heavy-Duty Chores

The Model FT4A thermal mass flow meter targets oil & gas, wastewater, and industrial process applications. It features a robust design and features:

  • 2nd generation non- cantilevered DDC-Sensor™ - Advanced Direct Digitally Controlled sensor technology
  • Expanded Gas-SelectX® Menus – 3 onboard gas selection menus
  • CAL-V™ - In Situ Calibration Validation Routine
  • RS485 Modbus RTU or HART - Optional Communication Protocols
  • Standard USB Port – Gain Direct Meter-to-PC Connections
  • FT4A View™  - Software for configuring, graphing, and Logs

 

The meter is also suitable for applications monitoring pure gases, mixed gases, and even complex flare gas compositions. Gas-SelectX provides an expanded selection of gases from 3 menus:

  • Pure Gas Menu: 11 common gases available
  • Mixed Gas Menu: 10 common gases available to mix in 0.1% increments
  • O&G Gas Menu: C1 – C9+, Nitrogen, and CO2 gases available to mix in 0.1% increments 

 

The FT4A is equipped with the 2nd generation of DDC-Sensor that eliminates the sensor element vibration which can lead to metal fatigue and failure. Its unique design provides a technology platform for calculating accurate gas correlations for the Gas-SelectX feature.  

 

The FT4A’s CAL-V feature allows users to confirm that the meter is functioning properly and accurately -- with just a simple push of a button.  Other FT4A features:

  • One standard 4-20mA output for flow or temperature
  • A second output selectable for either:
  • Pulse output (pulses per unit/units per pulse)
  • RS485 Modbus RTU
